Android 4.4.2 KitKat Based CM11 M6 Update Now Rolling Out

CM11 M6

The CyanogenMod team has just released a new CM11 build based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The CM11 M6 is still an unstable build, but it does offer a better experience that nightly or M5 builds.

Unfortunately Android 4.4.2 KitKat update has been released 6 months ago and the CyanogenMod team hasn’t yet released a release canditate (RC) or stable build yet, so we have to stick with the M6 build until then.

The CM11 M6 should be pretty stable for a regular user, but it might have a few bugs that could disturb the daily use.

Like the CyanogenMod team got us used to, the CM11 M6 update is already available for a lot of devices. If you’re curious what devices you can install the M6 update, the head over to their download website and get it. The device list includes HTC One, LG G2, LG Optimus G, Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy S2, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 10, and more.

You should know that before installing a custom ROM, your device requires root, which usually voids the warranty. There are also some risks while rooting or installing custom ROMs on your device, like bricking it, which can make it unusuable at all.

If you know what you’re doing, then head over to the CM11 M6 download page and install the new update.

Shortly we will start writing guides to help you update your device to CM11 M6, so make sure to visit our website in the following days. We are going to make a guide for each smartphone the update is available for, but it’s going to take us a bit, considering there are a lot of devices and we always test everything before writing about it.
